It's the same with many skyscrapers to say they look better in sunlight, but with orange cladding this applies to mercury city tower a bit more.
Correct me if im wrong but doesnt Moscow have many sunny days every year? More sunny then London I would presume..

I don't know (I'll wikipeda it ) but Moscow certainly has a reputation for being an overcast/less sunny city as opposed to other european cities.

And Moscow forumers here- is Moscow an overcast city or is my assumption wrong?

When I visited a few years ago it certainly wasn't what I'd call 'sunny'- not that I went for the sunshine anyway

The average day light for both cities is approximately 10 hours so Moscow has sun close to half a year....

I love how the english language has the ability to turn anything into a verb!

chill. I made an assumption. It was wrong. Deal with it.

See that little word under my username? Do it.

Btw, I have fond memories of my visits to Florida, which despite having the title of 'sunshine state' can put on some glorious storms

there's something about driving in those epic downpours and booming skies that makes you feel so insignificant! Never experienced a storm in london on the scale of what I experienced in Florida!!


But anyway, back on topic- the cladding (I shamefully admit) looks better than I thought, but it's beauty is IMO weather dependent

Upon completion, people will be able to look at the tower and, depending on the colour, tell and even predict the weather "Oh noes, Mercury is shadowy again - better take that umbrella!"

You are hilarious! :-) BTW I live in Florida and we are up for some severe stroms this summer :-( As for the tower, I think it is oustanding. You cannot mistaken it for any other building in the world, I guess :-)

P.S. I am chilled ))
